*Katherine Mansfield Society*
*Annual Postgraduate Symposium*

*‘Katherine Mansfield & Writing New Worlds’*

*27 March 2017*

*Hosted by Queen’s College, University of Cambridge*

*Keynote Speaker: Professor Andrew Thacker (Nottingham Trent University)*

The organisers of the Katherine Mansfield Society’s annual postgraduate
symposium invite abstracts from taught and research students for this
year’s symposium, ‘Katherine Mansfield & Writing New Worlds’.

As Katherine Mansfield penned her short fiction during the early twentieth
century, modern life had taken on a vibrant new tempo. Nineteenth-century
forces had accelerated cultural and political interconnectedness on a
planetary scale, and with it ushered in fresh modes of being. New forms of
urban living, global pathways of commerce and migration, political turmoil,
and emerging recognitions (and cognitions) of the self, shaped the new
worlds captured in Mansfield’s writing.

The organisers invite submission of papers which explore literary responses
to life in the early twentieth century, including: textual circulation and
modernist magazines; materiality; genre; class; race; gender; the everyday;
the fantastic; queer studies; philosophical and theoretical approaches; war
and politics; illness; bohemianism; the (post)colonial and empire; migrant
and diaspora; the visual arts and the theatrical; fashion; comparison /
influence. Authors might include Virginia Woolf, D.H. Lawrence, Aldous
Huxley, H.D., Elizabeth von Arnim, T.S. Eliot, James Joyce, and many others.

We are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker will be Professor
Andrew Thacker (Nottingham Trent University).

Please send 150 word proposals and a short biographical sketch to the
organisers, Joe Williams and Dr Gerri Kimber by 01 February 2018 at
